Bad Omen is a status effect that causes a raid to appear if a player enters a village.


In Java Edition, Bad Omen's potency determines the number of waves of the raid (and thus final wave difficulty) that the player triggers upon entering a village. If the raid results in player victory, the Hero of the Village's potency equals the Bad Omen's potency (capped at level 6).

In Bedrock Edition regardless of bad omen level, it will always give the same effect.


Cause Potency Length Notes
Raid captain I 1:40:00 If the outpost captain is killed by a player or tamed wolf.
Raid captain I–VI[note 1] 1:40:00 If the patrol captain is killed by a player or tamed wolf.‌[Java Edition only]
All villagers die or all beds destroyed during a raid. I 1:40:00 Player must be within village boundary.‌[Bedrock Edition only]
  1. One level is added each time a patrol captain is killed, capping at level six.

Immune mobs[edit]

Only boss mobs are immune to Bad Omen; however, only players can trigger raids.
